Subject: The 13th Month of 1977
If you are a fan of '77, as I, especially the final run of the year at Winterland, you will find this appealing and quite satisfying. Though Jerry's vocal show the lingering effects of the laryngitis he seemed determined to make up for it with his playing and the band follows happily along. An eclectic set list, but they all shine on this nite, even the Oldie Standards (i.e. Brown Eyed Women, Me & My Uncle, Jack Straw, etc.)glow brightly.
Thanks to all who put this together - clear as a bell to me and nice to hear Keith up front, it allows one to hear some good interplay between he and Jerry.
I hate to rate as I only review when I have been particularly moved and find the performance exceptionally worthy of comment and of your attention, so I have to shine the brightest lite on this.
Subject: Best ROSES of the '70s
So today my goal is download some of my favorite GD tapes to one of my three iPods. This show 1-10-78 is my FIRST pick. I LOVE this entire second set with ROSES being my personal favorite version. Because Jerry was recovering from laryngitis, the trippiness to his voice adds such much uniqueness to this performance. His voice is so moving. I have turned many on to this show ever the years. Download and enjoy!
Subject: Jerrys back
Sounds like he was saving up for that fierce solo in B.E. women.
Tasty franklins tucked away at the end of set 2, jers voice was still hagged, but the show was sweet.
Good show. Very good sound quality.
Subject: All A Buzz
This was my first of some 200 plus shows. The crowd was a buzz...in more ways than one...with anticipation regarding if Jerry would sing or not. Well, the opening notes are clearly Bertha and as Jerry steps to the mic, grin ear to ear, belts out "I had a hard run"...the crowd explodes with joy. You see, Jerry had laryngitis the few shows before and Bobby did all the singing. This was a great way to start my journey with the Dead!!

Another fine recording!!!!
Pretty good show too! Nice peppy Bertha>Good Lovin' opener to get things hopping right off the bat. despite some early technical problems, they are able to sustain the energy throughout the show.
Show is a solid 4 and the sound is definitely a 5. Hard to imagine anything sounding crisper and cleaner than this one!!
